This proposal is likely to cringe. According to JDD information, faced with social anger, some elected representatives of the majority would not be against a new tax bracket for high income.

Currently, the last tranche, born under François Hollande, amounts to 45%. "We must lighten the bottom of the scale so that it is a little less abrupt for the less fortunate, and weigh down for the very very rich who are capped and benefit from tax loopholes and tax credits", says LREM MP Émilie Cariou.

But this proposal is far from unanimous in the majority. "We did not remove the ISF to recreate it in another form! The last tax bracket is already 10 points higher than the average of OECD countries", said Laurent Saint-Martin, LREM deputy.

On the side of the cabinet of Gerald Darmanin, same story: this new slice is not planned.In contrast, the issue can be addressed during the great national debate.
